"The picture becomes a bittersweet last hurrah for the Great Society..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

When the son of a politically influential man is brutally murdered, thick-skinned detective Joe Leland (Frank Sinatra) is assigned to the case. His job becomes even more challenging when he has to convince the entire police department to see past the victim's sexuality. After the dead man's roommate is convicted and Leland moves on to his next case, it appears that the two cases may be linked, and the wrong man may have been penalized. With an all-star cast that includes Lee Remick, Tony Musante and Jack Klugman, The Detective is one of Sinatra's most gritty and powerful films

Product Description:

A hard-boiled mystery starring Frank Sinatra as the tough-as-nails Detective Joe Leland, THE DETECTIVE was based on a novel by Roderick Thorp. Called in to investigate the murder of Teddy Leikman, the homosexual son of a well-connected department store mogul, Leland executes an open-and-shut investigation. He quickly elicits a confession from Teddy's crazy roommate, and the defendant is convicted and executed while Leland scores a promotion. But when the widow of an accountant seeks out the Detective to look into the circumstances of her husband's death, Leland uncovers some startling evidence implicating a corrupt New York City political machine; an attempt on Leland's life further convinces him that the authorities have a stake in keeping this case closed. Lee Remick (THE OMEN) plays Leland's estranged wife, Karen.
